Jordan Goldwire, a 6-2 point guard, tweeted Monday that he has committed to Duke.
He’ll join Alex O’ Connell to give Duke an occasional all-Georgia backcourt.
If you want an analogous player, think Tyler Thornton: he was recruited to Duke as insurance for Kyrie Irving.
In today’s system, he’s a program guy as opposed to a one-and-done.
Duke hasn’t signed top target Trevon Duval yet but Goldwire is clear about his early role: "They didn't promise me anything," Goldwire told ESPN. “They said they needed another ball handler who would be able to run the second group. It's a great opportunity for me."
That’s probably more or less what Thornton heard too. Of course he became much, much more than that.
